And….I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce the new DRS management team from Badger Bay Management Company. Badger Bay has an experienced team of management professionals who have been serving organizations very familiar to many of our members, such as The American Board of Swallowing and Swallowing Disorders and The American Board of Fluency and Fluency Disorders. Eric Ostermann (President of BBMC), Karen Schneider (Association Director), Ashley Monson (Education Director), and Amy Schmidt (Assistant Director) will be working with the DRS. For more about BBMC, please visit We are excited to be partnering with such an experienced and dedicated team and look forward to their contributions to the future of our growing society.

On behalf of your Board of Directors and 2017-2018 officers, thank you for all you do to support your patients with dysphagia, your colleagues who contribute to their assessment and treatment, and the science of swallowing and swallowing disorders. We look forward to seeing you in Baltimore in March!
